Chicken Cacciatore

“We know, for instance, that there is a direct, inverse relationship between the frequency of family meals and social problems. Bluntly stated, members of families who eat together regularly are statistically less likely to stick up liquor stores. blow up meth labs, give birth to crack babies, commit suicide, or make donkey porn. If little Timmy had just had more meatloaf, he might not have grown up to fill chest freezers with Cub Scout parts.” Anthony Bourdain

As I have state before, the crock pot has become my stay at home assistant. Oh, how I love to make the food in the morning, and come home to a cooked dinner.

If you don’t already have a crock pot that browns your food, it’s better to start browning the chicken.All-Clad 7 Qt Gourmet Slow Cooker with All-in-One Browning What else are you going to need?

After you brown the chicken, you are going to take them out of the crock pot for a few minutes, while you add the other ingredients.

Add your two cloves of garlic, and 1/2 red onion into the crock pot. You want your onions and garlic to be translucent. After this happens to your garlic and onions, add your chicken back into the crock pot. Add one can of crushed tomatoes, one cup of wine, your diced bell pepper, and your spices. Some people like more spices and some like less, but at least add 1/2 teaspoon of each.

Here’s the best part…IMG_9719

Let it cook low for 4 hours. It will automatically go to warm. Then when you get home you will have a delicious meal waiting for you. Add some real parmigiana cheese to the top if you like, and a rosemary on the side for beauty.  You are going to love it!
